Ireland Backed To Win Six Nations – England For Grand Slam

The Six Nations book makes interesting reading as punters have started to back Ireland (9/4) rather than the favourites England (10/11). Although England are proving popular in the Grand Slam market at 2/1.

“Clearly our customers think Ireland are the value in the tournament, but believe that if England manage to beat them then the Grand Slam is a real possibility,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
